Reaching Your Full Potential

In today’s world, so many of us live unfulfilling lives. When we were younger, we had created this amazing life with our imagination filled with adventure and magic, travelling the world with an abundance of money. What happened? Why aren’t we all living our fulfilling lives? Why do so many of us settle for the boring soul-crushing job that just pays the bill?  Is it just because it’s safe, easy, the familiar?  Or is there, perhaps, something more to it? I wonder.  When we’re younger, we had this intention and we felt the experience of everything we would become in the future. Yet somewhere along the way, we took the safe, easy road. Why did you do that? Don’t you want to fulfill your heart’s desires and dreams? You still can if you do the work to create it.  

The problem for a lot of us is that we don’t know how to create what we actually want in our lives. We have this program running that creates all the things we don’t want. If you don’t want it, why do you keep creating it? Why do you keep hitting yourself? It hurts, right? So stop it all ready! Instead, allow yourself to create something you actually want.

In order for that to happen, you need to actually make a choice, a choice to actually change and do the work. This means doing the work every day. This means taking the time for you, the time to love yourself and give to yourself with that same love, understanding and compassion you have for a small child that you love dearly, that you would do anything to protect and keep safe. It means sitting in the stillness of your own mind, your own vibration of creation every day, making the choice to empower your body with the love that you give to everyone else. But will you make that choice or will you tell yourself the same old excuses: why you won’t do the work, why you can’t do the work? It’s summer. I don’t do my spiritual work in the summer. That’s more of a winter and fall thing. I’m too tired. I’d rather just watch Netflix tonight. I have kids and they require all my attention.  I just don’t have time today. 

The truth for so many of us is that we don’t actually think we deserve to have our dreams come true or to live a carefree, abundant life. We give everything we have to those around us that we love. When we listen to their problems, or  when we hold them when they are sad. Telling them everything will be ok, or when we lend them a hand when they feel overwhelmed by the world, lightening their load. For a lot of us, it’s easy to give everything we have. For no other reason than we love them. If you can give all that you have, all that you are just to make someone’s life better, why can’t you give it to yourself? Why can’t you show yourself that same love? I wonder, when was the last time you told someone, “Sorry, I can’t give to you today. I’m all given out. I have nothing left to give you. I can’t seem to find the energy to love myself the way I’ve loved you all my life. I need to make a change in my life. What would they even say to you? Would they jump at the chance to help you and give to you the same way you’ve given to them? And more importantly, would you even accept it, or would you do it the hard way and do it all by yourself? 

The sad truth for so many of us is we tend to do it alone. We suffer in silence. We don’t ask for help and when we have nothing left to give we give some more. We use up all of our energy to create on the people we love. As beautiful and admirable as it is to give and to be of service, until you take the time to love yourself the same way you would that small child, that you love dearly and would do anything to protect. You’re limiting yourself and just as importantly, you’re limiting your ability to assist those people in your life who you love. 

So many of us in the spiritual community have adopted this notion, this belief, that in order to be spiritual and do this work, you’re not allowed to have this abundant life with lots of nice things and money. That to be of service means giving and not taking anything from the field beyond what you actually need to survive. You are allowed to have all the nice things and an abundance of money to create positive change in the world. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are expected to give and give and give and get nothing in return, that if you don’t do that, you’re not really a spiritual person being of service. 

Money is energy, the ability to do good in the physical world. To create larger scale changes in the world requires a lot of energy, having an abundance of money would help, wouldn’t it? And if you’re able to make meaningful changes in the world with your abundance of money, aren’t you a spiritual person being of service? This notion that you are not allowed to have a lot of financial abundance is stopping you from reaching your full potential as a high vibrational intelligence with the ability to make meaningful change in the world. In a way that is right for you, that makes you excited just to be alive. But can you accept that you are worth it? Will you allow yourself to dream big and be abundant beyond your wildest dreams with the intention to use this abundance to give and make meaningful changes in the world? And most importantly, will you stop listening to all the old programming that’s telling you you’re not allowed to have financial abundance in your life, and if you do, you’re not really a spiritual person being of service? 

You are most certainly allowed to be financially abundant and you deserve it! You don’t need to suffer in silence anymore! That is a choice. All you have to do is make a different choice that will lead to different actions and start to create that abundant life you dreamt of when you were younger and full of wonder and excitement about what life could be. It’s time for you to be bold, to be courageous, to step into the field of creation and allow yourself to create what you truly desire, knowing that it’s ok to have everything you ever wanted, knowing that it won’t actually change you, that you can still be a loving person being of service and still have everything you ever wanted! But will give yourself permission to have everything you ever wanted? The choice is yours. I hope you make the correct one.
